Cortana is the function integrated into Windows 10 with which we will have an assistant to keep up with the news, open our files or programs, know the state of the weather or the roads and much more. With Cortana you will not need to have to manually search for some functionality of the equipment or consult actions such as the time or some specific information since we can speak to you by voice..

 

But for many users it is annoying that Cortana launches suggestions or that it opens, affecting productivity, so if you are tired of Cortana in Windows 10 TechnoWikis will teach you the method to deactivate it in a comprehensive way.
